The Eleventh Command


There is a distant star
that will not find the Heavens
inside this land’s depths
Within the world’s hustle
It’s lost
and only a few will learn it
Some are born with it
Others respect it
but they both burn
The eleventh commandment500x500-z5P
has a humble look
and a cool breeze
You can find it inside the eyes of the poor
as crystal clear glasses
The eleventh commandment
only the crazy feel it
and those who were born
to live like slaves

original verison of the poem “The Eleventh Command”
written by Alexandra Zevgiti

Ενδέκατη Εντολή

Είναι αστέρι μακρινό
που δεν θα βρει ουρανό
σ αυτής της γης τα βάθη
Μέσα στου κόσμου τη βουή
μαζί χάνεται κ αυτή
και λίγοι θα τη μάθουν
Κάποιοι γεννιούνται μ αυτή
κάποιοι τη σέβονται πολύ
μα καίγονται κι αυτοί
Η ενδέκατη εντολήmqdefault
είναι βλέμμα ταπεινό
και δροσερό αγέρι
Τη βλέπεις σε μάτια φτωχικά
σαν ολοκάθαρα γυαλιά
Την ενδεκάτη εντολή
την νιώθουν μόνο οι τρελοί
κι όσοι έχουν γεννηθεί
να ζουν σαν σκλάβοι
